I have been looking at baby carriers and there are just too many to choose from so I thought I would see if anyone had any suggestions on what kind I should purchase. I am open for any suggestions and comments. Thanks.

OK I ran out to get some storage containers and came back to find my husband cleaning out the storage room and putting up Christmas decorations!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, he had so much done in a short period of time. I immediately started to help. Brady had come home from his Chicago trip and had left to go to a friends house for a little lets see what Santa brought time so it was perfect. We have everything put away and organized except for the front door decorations which I will do when I get back from visiting my Dad. I love the decorations but I was ready for them to be gone. Its like as soon as the presents are out from under the tree I am ready to take it all away. It looks so nice and clean no clutter anywhere except for the playroom I will just deal with that later. I hope you all have a Happy New Year!!!!

We just got Brady to bed after a busy day. The child did not want to go to bed he is ready to go. We looked up where Santa was on the Nodar and he was in Charleston which is only a hour away so I think that made him think I better get to sleep. We had a big cookie party yesterday and the big guy himself showed up for the party. What a surprise. I will post pictures later. We then went to the movies and had dinner out. Today has just been some wrapping and hanging out then going to the Candle light service at our church. I have to say that is when I think our church is the prettiest. I love the candles and everyone singing. As far as Christmas Day goes we are up in the air as where to go after Santa and breakfast. We could go to Mikees Aunts or my Aunts or just surprise my Dad with a visit, whatever we do it will be short because I have to pack Brady for Chicago. He leaves on Wednesday with his Grandmother for a little trip. They plan on seeing the city and just having fun together. I know they will have a great time. Well I know it will be an early day so I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas from our home to yours!!!!

Tonight is the Christmas pageant at our church. Brady has been in it for the last three years as a shepherd this year he is a lead shepherd and has had a nap and not such a hectic day so hopefully no picture like this one this year. I remember this picture he was so tired that night he had had too much fun earlier in the day and was tired he sat there with his chin in his hand for a long time. My Aunt and Grandmother are coming tonight from Greenville to see the performance and Brady is excited about that and getting to have dinner with them. As busy as we all are I hope we can all remember the true meaning of Christmas. Have a great one.

I got this in an e-mail today from my good friend Beth and I thought it was worth sharing with you all.

Before I was a Mom
Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests,
or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom -I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy. Before I was a Mom -I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
